Shocking: Delray Beach Man Accused of Defrauding Over $357,491 from Credit Union Customers!

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says that a man from Delray Beach was arrested on fraud and theft charges after he stole more than $350,000 from users of a credit union in the Pensacola area.

Johnathan Coleman Jr., who is 28 years old, is accused of fraud against a bank, grand theft, and planned fraud. Deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office caught him on Tuesday.

According to a warrant from Escambia County, Coleman was working at Navy Federal Credit Union in 2021 when he accessed the accounts of 38 members and gave their account information to an unknown person. This made it possible for money to be moved without permission.

Between the 38 accounts, a total of $357,491 was stolen.

The person then gave Coleman his “share” of the money, which the order said was close to $30,000.

The FDLE says that Coleman would get CashApp and other app-based money within three days of the fraudulent transfers.

With a $115,000 bond, he was let out of jail.
